During set up of the system, you may wish to import historic project data to Appogee HR. This will populate your employees timesheets & project log pages so that you can accurately report on all project time, even that which took place before you started using Appogee HR.
Using the tool
Go to Time > Config > CSV Import.
Click the Download button to download the template.
Fill out the template ensuring you add employee email, the date of the activity and the duration spent in minutes. You must add at least one entry in: Customer, Project & Task.
Once you have filled out the template, save it as a CSV file.
Click the Browse button to import the file to the CSV import tool, then click Upload & Continue.
The tool will check the attachment and if there are any errors found, the system will present you with them.
For a list of errors, see below.
Once you have fixed any errors, re-save the file and repeat the upload process.
You will then receive a message to say the import has passed validation checks.
If you're happy with the data, click Continue.
